*****Just a few thoughts on that Dudley at Northwest Guilford women’s game:
We will be at this game today with the broadcast on GreensboroSports Radio and inside the NWG gym on 97.7 FM…Dennis White will be there today for the broadcast and Wyatt Smith will have the post-game post on the game here at the site…

The defense will determine the outcome in the Dudley-NWG girls game…

That will be the difference, the Defense…Dudley looking hard for points on the inside and NWG will want to move that ball and find some openings on the outside…

In the end the opposite might really come into major play, what NWG can do when they go inside or drive the basket and what Dudley does when NWG cuts off the inside….Can Dudley find points on the outside if NWG forces K. Morris off of the low post and out of the lane and can Dudley drive and dish with K. Harrison and T. Johnson????Dudley may also decide to teat the waters and have K. Harrison and T. Johnson attack the basket and go hard to hole…Dudley must get those second chance baskets, one-and-done will kill them…Victoria Harrison could give Dudley a big boost with her outside shot…

NWG will come ready for a shootout if there is one, but again, the defense must take center stage and the eventual winner will be the best defensive team on Saturday….Tucker, Neas, King and Barber will have their running and shooting shoes on and Morgan Pointer and Bria Gibbs will have a line drawn down near that basket…

Ought to be a very good game and we are looking for a very large turnout…If your team is not playing today, head to NWG at 6pm….If your team is playing, be sure to support them, if they are home, or on the road…*****

  1. Andy, how about for those who have nothing to do, head to the Ranch and watch the Cowgirls at 6 and the Cowboys at 7:30. Too outstanding games predicted.
